I've just made those again last weekend as the weather was BBQ perfect. Summer is here!! Oh, how exciting...!
I just love those exotic marinades that I cannot think of not doing especially when BBQ weather comes in full glory.
These prawns are really the simplest thing ever to make and they taste just divine.
I love to share this recipe with you because those prawns are so delicious and really easy to prepare, they also cook in minutes and disappear in seconds.
Let's get on with some grilling.
Those can also be beautifully cooked on griddle pan or in the oven if you don't have a barbecue handy or don't really feel like getting the barbecue going or, of courseif the weather is not best for one big fat BBQ.
Here are some other delicious recipes you may enjoy:
- Prawn, chorizo and cauliflower couscous
- Prawn, radish and cucumber, open-sandwich
- Singapore style noodles stir-fried with shrimps and vegetables
- Pork and seafood risotto with turmeric and long pepper
do I need to marinade BBQ-ed Prawns?
Yes, it is always great to get these prawns marinated so they can get all these flavours soaked right in
can i make these prawns in adance?
Yes, absolutely. these can be marinated for longer (overnight) and cooked when served but also can be BBQ-ed and used later in cold salads and sandwiches
